WhatsApp could be near acquainting end-to-end encrypted backups for Android clients.

WABetaInfo revealed that WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.21.15.5 was released through the Google Play Beta program on July 16 with support for encrypted backups to Google Drive.

The organization likewise said that backup files saved to Google Drive or iCloud aren’t encrypted, nonetheless, which makes it simpler for somebody to access the data they contain.

WABetaInfo announced that WhatsApp was testing encrypted cloud backups for its Android and iOS apps in March. Presently it appears to be the feature is beginning to carry out to Android beta testers.

The feature supposedly offers two options for securing backups: A user-generated password or a 64-character key that is confined to numeric digits (0-9) and lowercase letters (a-f).

Save that data in a protected place, since, in such a case that the password or key is neglected, it’s basically impossible for WhatsApp to restore access to the encrypted backup.
